Chefs from Planet Green’s series Future Food, Homaro ‘Omar’ Cantu and Ben Roche, are taking part in the White House Easter Egg Roll, an annual tradition. The theme this year is ‘Ready, Set, Go!’ which is aligned with First Lady Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative to battle childhood obesity. Cantu and Roche are on hand to make a snack consisting completely of organic, locally-sourced fruit. The two chefs will spend the majority of the day in the ‘Play with Your Food Area’ on the South Grounds of the White House property where children can experience the fun of making healthy choices. ‘Planet Green is thrilled and honored that our two newest ambassadors are representing Discovery Communications in this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll,’ said Laura Michalchyshyn, president and general manager of Planet Green, Discovery Health and TreeHugger. ‘Ben and Omar will thoroughly entertain and delight while offering a real glimpse into the future of food – a future that is fun, nutritious and imaginative.’ Future Food airs on Tuesday nights during Planet Green’s VERGE block.
